When you start researching, it's a good idea to start broad and first find general background information about your research question or topic.
Background information introduces you to the various issues within that topic (so you can narrow down your paper topic, if needed). It can also help you understand more specific details about the topic as you get further along in the research journey.
After you click on any online database link, you will see a log in screen.
If you have a student ID card:
Log in by typing in the library barcode number from the back of your ID.
If you don't have a student ID card:
Click the myLoneStar Username & Password Login link at the bottom of the screen
and log in the same way you log in to myLoneStar.
If you have any trouble logging into a database, contact the library.
